Apps Generate Cash for Smartphone Users
Tags: , , ...

Smartphones have made modern-day life easier in many ways – from being able to access email and social media to conducting bank transactions while you’re online at the grocery store.

Many people fork over a substantial amount in wireless charges for those conveniences – but some may be overlooking the earning potential of smartphones. With the right app, the average person can actually make money.

InCharge Debt Solutions recently released their top five picks for income-generating apps. Whether people want to sell their goods and services or find a better-paying job, one of these apps might be able to improve their bottom line:

  • eBay Mobile: The popular auction site has been around since the days when users had to connect digital cameras to desktop computers with a cord. Now it can be used from a wireless device, making it easy to sell items on the go. Snap pictures with a smartphone and upload them with one click. Then wait for the bids to roll in.

  • Facebook Yard Sale: The Facebook Mobile app isn’t only useful for getting notifications about YouTube’s latest funny video. Upload pictures of stuff you’d like to unload on friends and neighbors, create a private group so you can sell to local folks and avoid shipping costs, and you’ve got a virtual yard sale that can net a real-life profit.

  • Go Payment by Intuit: This is one of many credit card processing devices on the market that allow users to plug card readers into their smartphones and accept credit card payments; others include Square and PayPal Here. All of them work the same way: for a fee (usually 2–3% per transaction) people can take credit card payments for good or services.

  • Etsy: The crafty set can start a virtual storefront via the Etsy app. Manage listings, make sales, contact customers and accept payments with Etsy’s mobile version and let your latest art project boost your bank balance.

  • Proven: This job-search app lets you search for work and apply for jobs from your smartphone. Users create profiles, upload resumes and cover letters, and specify their job search requirements. Alerts are sent when a new job posting meets a user’s criteria, and the job-hunter can apply right away via wireless phone, tablet, or other mobile device.

InCharge Debt Solutions is a non-profit credit-counseling agency that provides customers with financial advice and solutions. They provide free, confidential consultations online and by phone.
